Public Transport based walk with Becky Lea.
This is a joint walk with the Sheffield Walkers.
This walk takes in a wide variety of scenery from the canals around Marple and the Roman Lakes, climbing up to St Thomas' Church, part of which dates back to the 13th Century. The small hamlets of Moorend and Brookbottom are passed en route, with the opportunity of a drink at the Fox Inn in Brookbottom. There are fine views from the higher points over towards Stockport and Manchester. Also, more northerly over Hyde and further east, Kinder Scout stands proud.
